Bruno Le Maire, the Minister of the Financial system and Finance, is touring to Toulouse this Saturday. The day after the judicial liquidation of SAM, the Aveyron foundry subcontractor to Renault, the minister acknowledged a “failure for all of us”. 346 staff will lose their jobs, for some the job of a lifetime. Bruno Le Maire guarantees that the State will assist them and asks Renault to imagine its tasks.
The Toulouse industrial court docket dominated on Friday the cessation of SAM exercise. It’s a hammer blow for the workers, who hoped to work a minimum of till December 10. The state can attraction this resolution. Are you going to do it Bruno Le Maire?
Initially, I wish to say that this court docket resolution is a shock. It’s a very exhausting check for the workers, for his or her households, for all those that have labored on the location for years. We have been preventing for 2 years to attempt to discover a stable purchaser. Two years that the State has spared its efforts to attempt to open a prospect of restoration which is stable and which may maintain in the long run for the workers. It’s a failure for all of us. I feel to attraction the choice, promote illusions to staff, it could not be accountable.
Now we now have to look to the longer term. And what’s the future? It’s that every one workouts his tasks. The primary duty is that of Renault. I say this very firmly. The first duty on the SAM industrial web site is Renault: duty to assist staff, to coach them, to reclassify them.
Then, I’d train all my tasks as Minister of the Financial system to assist staff and to make sure that there’s a future on the SAM industrial web site. If that is the top of SAM as a enterprise, this isn’t the top of the SAM industrial web site. I’ll battle in order that we are able to develop new industrial actions there. It’s important that this industrial basin continues to develop.
As for the workers, we now have the impression of getting been betrayed by Renault and the State. The unions declare that the one takeover provide on the desk had state backing after which on Tuesday you say the provide was not credible.
My duty, it’s to talk a language of fact to the workers. This isn’t to promote illusions, this isn’t to attempt to step over the subsequent election by saying: “I introduced a couple of million, we are going to cross the elections, then after every one will handle”. That isn’t my imaginative and prescient of my position as Minister of the Financial system. My position is to guard staff, provide them job prospects, permit them to coach, to qualify in a technological and ecological transition which we see may be very fast and really brutal.
It’s not don’t lose hope of discovering a distinct industrial restoration for SAM in order that staff can preserve a job, showcase their expertise which I do know are distinctive. Now, we should look to the longer term and be certain that the commercial restoration of the location and the event of the employment space present prospects for everybody, for workers and their households.
Staff are employees who’re extremely specialised of their discipline. Some usually are not very removed from the retirement age. Can you actually consider a brand new schooling when you find yourself 55-60 years outdated?
I need a answer for every worker, a tailored answer tailored to the life course of every worker. It’s not the identical to be at SAM at 35 or to be there at 52 or 53, to have labored there for 10 or two years. Every worker must have a supported, supported journey to discover a answer that fits them. It’s a promise that I make and I preserve my guarantees.
Renault should placed on the desk a package deal for every worker that’s advantageous. That is Renault’s main duty. He has an ethical and monetary duty in the direction of every worker. Then there may be the state. I am going unlock all the required assets within the emergency fund that I had set as much as anticipate these difficulties confronted by foundries with the ecological and technological transition.
There are 50 million euros obtainable. I’ll take all the required envelope so that every worker can have entry to both coaching assist of € 15,000, or enterprise creation assist of € 15,000, or mobility assist of € 5,000 whether it is vital to maneuver to search for a job. Every worker can be entitled to all of those envelopes so as to have the ability to discover the answer that corresponds to him.
With the closure of SAM, job cuts in Bosh in Rodez, Aveyron is struggling. You usually speak in regards to the relocation of industries at the moment. Now we have the impression that every little thing is disappearing right here.
Decazeville has been a pool of jobs with an industrial custom for many years. I don’t am under no circumstances for erasing traditions and a working reminiscence with the again of my hand. I feel it could be each an financial error and as well as, an ethical fault vis-à-vis the employees and their households and vis-à-vis the historical past of those households which imply lots to me.
I hope that within the Decazeville basin, we are able to herald new producers, herald new initiatives. We’re already engaged on it with a number of dedication. I feel we’d like speed up this work, collectively. Good concepts can come from anyplace.
I’m able to work on this with the unions, native elected representatives and the president of the area, Carole Delga. All of us have the identical aim: industrial jobs within the Decazeville basin. So both we shoot one another and we’re not going to get there, or we come collectively. SAM is a failure, however now we now have to flip the web page to invent one other future on this industrial web site and within the Decazeville basin. I’m satisfied that it may be carried out.
